Future Disney Legend

Disney, Indiana Episode 143 – Christmas Time in Disney, Indiana

Merry Christmas from Disney, Indiana! Our hosts have their stockings full of treats for this episode. They’ll start with a look at the latest film from Disney, Saving Mr. Banks. Do they think it’s practically perfect or did they need a spoonful of sugar to wash it down? You’ll have to listen and find out.

After leaving the theater, they stop by Flynn’s Arcade to play with some of the latest additions to Disney Infinity: the Toy Story playset along with the Woody, Jack Skellingon, Vanellope von Schweetz and Wreck-It Ralph figures!

Another present for you is the last Future Disney Legend segment for 2013 and the announcement for their 2014 year-long celebration in Disney, Indiana.

Tracey and Scott also let everyone know about an upcoming trip they have planned for Walt Disney World and that “other” theme park in Orlando!

All this, plus Christmas music on WWED, a call to the Main Street Cinema and a new resident in town in the feedback section!

Sure looks like our hosts are full of Christmas gifts!

Welcome to Disney, Indiana!

Disney, Indiana Episode 141 – Yggdrasil or the World Tree of Life

Today’s episode finds one of our co-hosts not only MIA, but not found on Earth! Can our remaining host open the show? Will it go smoother than normal? Will the missing host return in time for the segments? Does anyone miss them? These answers and more await you!

Speaking of answers to questions – how about what segments are on today’s episode? Well, first off a discussion of the newest entry into the Marvel film universe: Thor The Dark World. A look at the film’s history, how it fits in with the other Marvel films and what our hosts thought of the film are all in store.

It’s also time for November’s Future Disney Legend segment with a look at the career of Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde. The man who, among other projects, helped developed the sorely missed Adventurers Club and also worked on a little something called Disney’s Animal Kingdom as well.

Keeping with the Animal Kingdom theme, our hosts have a book review on the Imagineering Field Guide to Disney’s Animal Kingdom from Tracey in the episode as well.

All this, plus a listen to WWED, a call over the Main Street Cinema to see what Mortis is up to and some great listener feedback!

Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
